Answered By: 
The Mayor

Written response from the Mayor TfL has written to all key stakeholders and affected residents and businesses in the London Boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth stating it will be proceeding with the scheme to extend route 255, and giving access to the 2009 and 2011 consultation reports.

The London Borough of Wandsworth has expressed further concerns and TfL has asked for any final comments relating to changes to the first and last times of buses on the extended route to be sent by 20 September.

The London Borough of Lambeth plans to do the necessary work to facilitate new bus stops in the Borough in October. TfL is planning to extend the service from 26 October, dependent on the completion of the bus stop works.
